Although a well-known provider of IP phones and phone systems, snom technology AG’s (News - Alert) business model revolves around more than just developing and distributing IP communications solutions. In fact, one important aspect of snom’s success can be attributed to extending the company’s market reach with its growing Partner Program.
To further educate and provide snom’s network of distributors with the appropriate tools to support and expand snom’s worldwide customer base, the company is now offering free online training courses to its resellers.
The program allows partners to aid in delivering an optimal level of customer service and direct access to the latest snom technology. The new e-learning course focuses on SIP fundamentals - SIP 101- and is the latest addition to snom's new online training program introduced earlier this spring. If you are a registered snom VAR, the courses are now available at no cost in North and South America, Australia and New Zealand.
According to the IP phone provider, the SIP 101 course is a modularized, online, Flash-based training course, complete with animations and quizzes to help engage trainees. Participants can complete an online assessment upon course completion to earn snom SIP 101 certification and the class will serve as a prerequisite to enrollment in the company's online snom ONE Certification Training course.
"By enrolling in our SIP 101 e-learning course VARs from around the world can learn fundamental SIP basics online and on their own time. This course is a prerequisite first step for VARs on the path to our snom ONE Certification Training and new business opportunities created by working with the snom ONE family of IP PBX (News - Alert) solutions," said Mike Storella, chief operating officer of snom technology, Inc.
snom understands its VARs may not have the time to attend traditional courses, therefore offering these free online training courses , the company hopes to provide its VARs with valuable, hands-on experience with all aspects of SIP, without the time and expense of traditional classes.Eligibility for the SIP 101 certification class is open to registered snom VARs in the Americas, Australia and New Zealand who can register quickly and easily at onlinetraining.snom.com. snom will be offering more online courses about snom products and key aspects of its SIP-based technology in the coming months.
